Blade Bummer – There goes my good mood

Do you remember Blade Runner? It was a movie about flying cars and androids who were virtually identical to humans. But do androids dream of electric sheep?

There’s a lot of nightmarish liberal media war machine angsting about being caught with their dicks out and skirts hiked.  Talk about Russian hands and fickle fingers. Do you remember the internet connected dildo that sold user data online? Well, transgender is like so last year, this year we can add internet connected A.I. sex robots to the gender identity spectrum. Is machinesexual a thing yet? Whatever, now you can wear VR goggles and make out with sex robots, and perhaps even fall in love. I would start a VR Sex Machine sub-reddit but there’s likely several already.

So if I understand what I see, rich people are talking about vertical farms, self-flying hover cars and robot sex while the rest of us talk about no jobs, no healthcare or no pensions. Do you remember when I said we don’t have enough cheap minerals or water for a 100% renewable energy world? Can you imagine how many minerals it would take for everyone to have a flying hover car, a sex robot and IOT everything? We’ll trickle charge ourselves to death. Soon, A.I. will know your sexual behavior better than you, and so will all the other perverts online. Kunstler says we lost the narrative. I say we lost our focus. Multi narrative streams diffuse focus, prevent survival and allows war.

Climate change and robots will make people poorer faster while at the same time the FAAGs of Facebook Amazon Apple Google put Walmart out of business, and concentrate wealth faster than ever, to fewer people than ever before. Social inequality is now worse than the Gilded Robber Baron age just before 1913, when bankers took over America’s currency and credit. Instead of a universal basic income, we should pay out carbon taxes in a new open A.I. block chain e-currency 100% to citizens and not to corporations and governments. This will redistribute wealth and reduce emissions faster than anything else. Open source money is how we phase out federalism and decentralize democracy.

Disconnected Fake Liberals And Sex Robots

Tubby ‘n Titties at TYT worry men will avoid real women for sexy robots. Ana professes her dual love for men and machines, specifically her man and her dildo. Will he leave her for a sex robot? Is he a closet machinesexual? Or will they all live happily together? What if his sex robot falls in love with her smart dildo? ♪♫♬ Stay tuned as the drama unfolds as it should. ♪♫♬

A.I. Exponential Manufacturing And CRISPRWARE

When an A.I. expert tells you there’s nothing to worry about, there’s something to worry about. When an A.I. expert wants an “adult conversation” about A.I., then why do I feel like a child being talked down to?

A.I. is not only faster, cheaper, smarter, it is exponential, especially for manufacturing and wealth concentration.

Facebook Amazon Apple and Google are concentrating wealth into fewer hands on a scale not seen since the invention of agriculture, A.I. speeds that concentration up. CRISPR is the greatest invention since fire, have you noticed any firestorms lately?

General Electric has been using A.I. for 20 years, but it’s only now just become a self-sustaining reaction. I can’t wait to read about a sustainable A.I. ecology. I’m not against A.I., I’m against how we use it.

Measures are laughably being taken to tame the mighty beast, but humans have never met a forbidden fruit they didn’t like. It’s the same with CRISPR. If you think Ransomware is bad, just wait until we get CRISPRWARE! That’s when you hire an undergrad to make a new bacterial disease and cure all in one shot. You give the disease away for free, and charge for the cure. We already got A.I. designed DNA in our food. I call it the green thumb ecology of sustainable collapse. At least we’re good at something. And like hitting your green thumb with a hammer, it feels so good when you stop.

When we first discovered nuclear power we promised it would eventually be used for good. Then we buried nuclear Thorium research because it was too safe and cheap. I don’t have to ask how that’s working for ya. But first, a drink.

Methane Clathrates Don’t Kill – The Ordinary Methane Below Them Does

Methane clathrates are the cork that traps the methane bomb below. This is why clathrate mining seems dangerous. It’s not good to dig at the cork, unless it’s wine beneath the cork. The eastern Siberian sea shelf is 2,000,000 square miles with 200,000 square miles of methane hots spot where emissions are 3-5X normal. Some say the sea is too shallow for clathrates but Shakova says otherwise.

Uber Rant – The Unreality Of James Hansen

 

Germany is shuttering its nuclear stations and now has to burn dirty brown coal to back up its solar/wind project. They do this while trying to sell us electric cars. We can’t shut down nuclear power, buy electric cars and run it all on solar/wind power. This is fucking impossible. At the same time, you can’t shut nuclear plants, sell electric cars, run it on solar/wind power and fund a massive war with Russia.

France has been getting 80% of its electricity from nuclear power since the stoned age. Now they want to use carbon taxes to shut down all their nuclear power too. They describe it as “Social Justice”. It’s like a virtue signalling pissing competition or a new media version of “Holier Than Thou”. Most of the population doesn’t understand you can’t shut nuclear plants, buy electric cars and run it all on a few million acres of solar/wind power. We can’t pick and choose power like a restaurant menu item. You go to war with the army you got not the army you want.

Nuclear plants take 50 years to shut down and hundreds of billions in waste management. They are old and sitting in flood/drought danger zones. James Hansen also warned us of super storms in 40 years so big they pick up one ton rocks off the ocean floor and toss them high up on the coast. Imagine giant rocks hurling at you from the ocean. In fact these super storms will be far stronger than what any human has seen in all our existence as a species on earth. That means we have to decommission a lot of old nuclear plants and dispose of the waste. Here’ a map of known nuclear power stations just in America.

map-of-us-nuclear-reactors_1

Now here’s the tricky part. James Hansen says that new nuclear power can make old nuclear waste safe and power America for 300 years. You can get 300 years of emissions free power by cleaning up nuclear waste. This is vital because nuclear waste doesn’t go away just because we want it to. In fact, we are losing the skills we need to clean up the mess we made.

James also says that the melting of Greenland glaciers will accelerate to the point where sea levels rise at the rate of meters per decade by 2060. That doesn’t mean everything will still be okay up to 2059 either. And that rate will go up. Seas can rise incredibly fast. I’m not the one saying this. This is James fucking Hansen.

Here’s what I’m saying. By 2050, we will see super mega monster storms and quickly rising seas next to our nuclear plants. Closing our eyes and shaking our fists won’t make this problem go away. I also don’t recommend offshore wind turbines.

What the media has created is the wired disconnected class. Wired into bullshit, disconnected from reality. Vertical farms and self-driving electric VTOL cars are not the real future. Cities are rural resource vacuums that bleed the countryside dry. They are inherently unsustainable. Steel reinforced concrete decays extremely fast when exposed to salt water. All of Manhattan island is made of steel reinforced concrete and once New York goes under those towers will topple within like 20 years.

We can’t divide the population into tooth faeries and war pigs and expect to survive. The U.S. armed forces and government are the number one employer in a weaponized economy. We have to unite to survive. It’s up to us to breach the empathy divide. Why not? Bernie did it.

This is a good video. I used to be heavily involved with lefty NGO social investment publishing, and I noticed the heightened difference between actions and words, or, that they all talked like hippies and acted like thieves. The more a media lie is pushed, the more it is toxic. The idea that investors want socially responsible Arctic investments is exactly what I’m talking about. It’s like Chrissy says.

“We now live in a nation where doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, universities destroy knowledge, governments destroy freedom, the press destroys information, religion destroys morals, and our banks destroy the economy.”

― Chris Hedges

But hasn’t it always been like that?

The only way to make individuals reduce emissions is to pay 100% carbon tax dividends in a new world public A.I. block chain e-currency, with no direct share for corporations and governments. I truly believe this, but then I’m a little high and I always make this statement when so. Even a die hard collaspitarian can’t stop imagining a better world.

Everything Sounds Better In French

The French chick in the third video segment is full of shit, European climate policy is a joke and China wants to build a New Mad Maximillian Silk Road to Europe. French Total Oil is working with the Russians in the Arctic right now. She wants to bail out nuclear power operators and call it social justice. But she’s right that earth emissions are taking over human emissions. Plus I love the way she says ‘mitigate’.

As for business stepping up to the emissions plate? That’s a joke right? Like Robber Baron Philanthropy? I watched Bill Gates talk about robotics and Trump. His head is so far up Hisanus it’s a blinking lopsided nightmare.

New York 2140 by Kim Stanley Robinson

2140

I liked Kim’s last novel called Aurora, it showed how extremely difficult biomes in space are to maintain. It’s long winded and boring, but an excellent book idea. But what about New York underwater?

Sea level rise estimates have tripled recently, and James Hansen says they can quickly become on a “meters per decade scale” as early as 2050-2060 along with monster storms unseen in humanity’s existence.

Add all this shit up and you can easily see we are going to have to decommission all our coastal nuclear reactors and at least recommission military installations. Which means making them stand up to floods and super storms. Yet the Pentagon wastes about $5 trillion per decade on corruption while the CIA won’t stop their War On Democracy.

It takes like 50 years to decommission nuclear reactors.

There’s a legend about a fabled sea-faring city called Atlantis that sunk beneath the sea for their evil ways. This happened some 10,000 years or more ago, and it’s going to happen again because we have literally forgotten our ancient past. And you know what they say about history.

So sing New York, New York and don’t forget that salt water very quickly rusts steel-reinforced concrete. That’s why Kim’s vision may be a bit off, because once inundated, New York towers will start toppling within 20 years, maybe as early as 2060. Who knows? But, look at the nuclear plants and military bases in Florida. It ain’t gonna be pretty.

Collapse Daily, How Loki Loses His Shit!

Each day I get up and focus on collapse for about an hour. Today the focus is on financials and energy – the crypto-currency crash, the gold flash crash, the Japanese bond market freeze, and the bail-in of taxpayers by 2 Italian banks. Most of these gyrations are considered temporary yet they do indicate massive instability.

Some “scientists” tell us we can achieve 100% renewable electrical energy before we collapse, which I say is complete bullshit. They say we can better utilize hydro power at a time that water flows are receding and erratic. They ignore the fact that nuclear plants are so old as to be unsafe and will have to be replaced. Gas and oil use are expected to grow 15% by 2035, but no one talks about how much of that growth will have to come from fracking, which uses massive amounts of water in the face of oncoming shortages. And nobody talks about the mineral constraints on solar and wind power development. When I look online, I see everyone talking about self-driving flying cars like it’s a given. People talk of electric cars like as if we can have all the renewable energy we want in the world. China is burning less coal and we are driving less mostly because of the economy, not because we are tree hugging saints. In fact most of the power for electric cars in Europe will come from actually burning trees.

The 2 biggest fake news stories are energy and finance, both of which are corrupt to the core. You may of heard of the death of Moore’s law, but when it comes to debt financing, it appears to be alive and well – and on steroids. All this talk of energy and finance seems to be at the expense of the ecology, which only surfaces when news gets out about how we can’t stop poisoning our water. All the talk of a green energy nirvana is totally disconnected from the war in Syria, which is about who will control a gas pipeline to Europe.

In ten years the super rich will have stolen half our pensions through fraud and half our jobs through robotics. In exchange for that, we are offered war, which is the number one jobs program in the U.S. In ten years we won’t need boots on the ground in the middle east, it will be fought by A.I. supersonic drones and miniature A.I. tanks.

Right now we got an opioid epidemic ravaging the nation, and big pharma decides to jack up the anti-overdose to extortionist heights. I thought I was a bad writer, but Julian Assange has come out with a story about how we’re dividing the country into racial/social tribes to accelerate the war agenda.

Most collapse stories started with gold shills and Green NGOs who wanted to make money. I write about collapse every day because I believe it’s happening and not to make money for a book tour or through YouTube monetization. The only reason ads appear on this site is because I’m too cheap to pay the $10/year it takes to get rid of them.
